Colloidal Silver - Uses

There is a product called Colloidal Silver which has been around, it seems, forever. Like many natural products it's overshadowed by the modern miracles of the pharmaceutical companies.

Small particles that remain suspended without forming a dissolved solution is called a Colloid. A liquid suspension of microscopic particles of silver is called Colloidal Silver. This simple compound is an effective antimicrobial that is a powerful antibiotic that kills bacteria, viruses and fungi.

How Does Colloidal Silver Work?

Don't be alarmed by the picture, the blue skin tint these folks have in the picture is called Argyria. This is caused by excessive dosages of colloidal silver and is very rare indeed. There are cases where people make a "home brew" of colloidal. Not knowing exactly what to do results in a contaminated substance and potential Argyria.

CS (colloidal silver) doesn't destroy bacteria it deactivates the enzymes. This stops the bacteria from multiplying or spreading. Another interesting characteristic of colloidal silver is its fight against viruses. Many viruses mutate and become resistant to normal antibiotics, this doesn't happen with CS. Colloidal silver has properties that prevents the virus from mutating. CS then attaches to the microbe making sure it starves itself  right to extinction.

CS can be found in the category of Homeopathic Supplements.

Cs is know to kill more than 650 forms of viruses and bacteria.

You should always check with your doctor, but using low dosages of CS has never caused argyria (blue skin) and CS is easily removed from your system through urination.

Cs was used during the war for healing wounds. It's reported that besides the antiseptic benefits the soldiers wounds healed much faster than compared to other chemicals.

There are several manufactures of colloidal silver and there are people who make their own at home too. You'll find the rare blue skin cases were either people making this at home, or folks drastically overusing the product.

I have also had good results with colloidal silver. It has helped me with earaches, mild skin conditions, and sore throats. I had not thought of using it for canker sores! will try it if I ever get them again.

Have used colloidal silver for years. I buy it from Utopia Silver when it is on sale.
I have seen infected puncture wounds on cats healed in a few days. I used it on my own cat scratches, I have an artificial knee and have to be very careful.
I take a tablespoon at the first sign of a cold and follow up with a couple more. It knocks the cold right out.
Love to use it.
